There is a "castle" in citrus heights or roseville (or somewhere in that 10-mile stretch of interstate 80), california that is, i believe, a private residence. i searched for it online for a little while today, but couldn't find a thing. it is visible from the freeway (i-80) on the right while traveling eastbound. it's pretty recent (that's relative--i'm 27, and i definitely remember it as being new, but that was years ago).

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

I see someone wrote about a castle in Roseville Calif, or Citrus Hights, (same place). There was a home that someone was making a castle out of about 15 to 20 years ago, with a moat and all. The last time I went past it, is was turned back into a standard home again.

Later, I received E-Mail that said:

There is a castle on I-80 just north of the river side exit still owend by Jerry Lees family.

The castle on interstate 80 in Roseville Calif. was started in the 1970's by an eccentric local hairstylist who had a few beauty colleges/shops in the area. I have not been in the area in 10 years but I grew up there and am now 44. The castle/home was below/to the side of the freeway overpass at Cirby way and was always something I noticed EVERY TIME I passed by. I am certain it is still there in some form or other.

Jerry Lee Owned the castle off of hwy 80 when I was a kid. He started to build a real castle home. He didn't finish. What you see on the freeway is a wall that looks like a castle a regular home sits behind it. This info was givin to me by my aunt a friend of the Lee family.

I'm attaching the castle home here. It has been VERY hard to get a photo of it because it's off the freeway, and there's no easy pulling over!
